I found this four year old photo from some old CD. If I remember correctly, this was taken from an ostrich farm in Melaka way back in 2002. Such an adorable face for a huge bird, isn’t it?
Poor ostrich’s eyes were covered with a hood so that they lost their senses and is easily pulled in the direction demanded by the keeper. You can actually ride ostriches but do watch out ‘cos they kick real hard.
Huge, gigantic ostrich egg. The ostrich farm turned the eggs into beautiful carvings but I can’t recall if they serve ostrich egg omelette. Anyone knows if ostriches eggs can be eaten?
The egg shell is so hard and tough, you can even stand on it. I didn’t dare to try though, ‘cos I don’t want to squash some baby ostriches to death.
I had eaten ostriches meat in Australia. It tastes gamey and rather tough. At the ostrich farm in Melaka, they even sell ostriches satay. Duh, poor ostriches are kept as entertainment and even food. Of course, I didn’t sample the satay because ostriches are dumb but adorable animals, right?
No interesting food blogs at the moment because I am rather lazy to cook or hunt for new foods lately.
